Labour ‘Catastrophic’ On Israel

Sound stuff from Michael Dugher today on Israel, describing Labour’s stance as catastrophic:

“I think that either through neglect or, frankly, in some instances incompetence, we mishandled our relationship with the Jewish community.”

Our attitude to Israel and the Middle East is really important to the Jewish community.”

A thumping 69% of Jewish voters backed Cameron according to polling.

Dugher blames Miliband completely, especially for Labour’s “unnecessary and divisive” position on Palestian statehood, saying it was “straw that broke the camel’s back with many people in the Jewish community. I knew exactly what would happen and I regretted that very profoundly”.

Guido is not sure the Shadow Transport Secretary is going to have much luck with his preferred new leader though…
